1913 Yale 7hp Bike and Sidecar

The Yale is a rare machine; this bike and sidecar are reputed to be the most original and unrestored in existence. An unusual feature on the Twin models is the horizontal cylinder fins. The sidecar was built by the Rogers Manufacturing Co., Chicago, Illinois, who would color-match them to any standard motorcycle. The wide track allowed the machine to run in wagon ruts for a smoother ride. Although Yale was only in business for 13 years, it held the distinction of tracing its lineage to the first motorcycle to cross the country in 1902. By the end of 1915 the market for war materials looked more promising than that for motorcycles, and Yale halted motorcycle production.
